BELGRADE - Tuesday night Belgrade Police Chief E.J. Clark released information regarding the suspect they had in Sunday's shooting.
MTN learned last night the suspect that Belgrade Police had in custody was released.
MTN’S Morgan Davies spoke with Manhattan Police Chief Dennis Hengel, who was in his patrol vehicle outside the crime scene. He told her that the crime scene is an active one, so an officer will be outside watching the house on Idaho Street until the investigation is concluded.
Hengel said this is because they don’t want anyone going beyond the crime scene tape; nothing in the house is adjusted, and no evidence is destroyed. Other police departments are assisting the Belgrade police in watching over the crime scene.
Public safety has been a big concern in this case since the news broke of the suspect being released. However, Chief Clark said that the public’s safety is the police department's number one concern and if there is a threat to the community everyone will be notified.
